Martin Moone is eleven and completely fed up with being the only boy in a family of girls. He’s desperate for a decent wingman to help him navigate his idiotic life. So when best mate Padraic suggests Martin get an imaginary friend—or “IF” for short—he decides to give it a go. His first attempt is Loopy Lou, a hyperactive goofball who loves writing rubbish rap songs. But Martin soon gets fed up with Lou and decides to trade in his IF for someone a little less wacky. Enter Sean “Caution” Murphy, an imaginary office clerk in a bad suit with a passion for laziness and a head full of dodgy jokes. Sean guides Martin through the perils of the playground, from dealing with his sisters’ pranks to beating bullies. But getting rid of Lou is not that easy, and having two imaginary friends is a recipe for trouble.

About the Narrator
Nick V. Murphy is a writer from Kilkenny, Ireland. (The V. in his name stands for Very.) He went to Trinity College Dublin to study English and History, but spent most of his time doing theater and running away from girls. This was where he bumped into Chris O'Dowd, who was out looking for pizza. After college, Nick focused on writing, which was the laziest career he could think of, as it could even be done while wearing pajamas. He wrote a few things for TV, then a movie called Hideaways, before co-writing a short film with Chris called Capturing Santa. The pajama-wearing pair developed this into the comedy series Moone Boy, which won an International Emmy for Best Comedy.
